Abstract: The development and characterization of single-mode 2-µm Tm-Ho:KYF 4 (KYF) laser is here presented. In particular, both frequency noise and relative intensity noise measurements of the single-frequency oscillator have been realized. From the power spectral density of the frequency noise an emission linewidth of ~100 kHz has been measured for the 2 µm source, whereas the intensity noise spectrum is quantum-noise limited for Fourier frequencies higher than 1 MHz.
